A Perfect Ten Orly helps us nail the best bridal manicure trends.

If you were to choose the one and only time to get your nails done, then your wedding day is definitely it. From the exact moment he slips that ring on your finger, you know you won't be able to keep your eyes off it. Those who look at your photos, whether right after or for years to come, will also be keeping an eye out for that precious ring shot, where your digits will be on display front and center.

Both manicure virgins and veterans will appreciate the help our friends from Orly gave, as they clue us in to the prettiest bridal nail styles of the moment. A few tips from the experts:

• The Original French Manicure, developed by Orly founder Jeff Pink in the mid-1970s, is still the last word in sophisticated nail styling and goes with everything—from the LBD you wore on your first date to your couture wedding gown.

• Choose lacquers that are free of toxins that are harmful to you and, if you're pregnant, to the development of your baby, such as dibutyl phthalate (DBP), formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin and toluene. Orly is one of the nail brands that are free of the “Big Three,” making it safe even for children and expectant mothers.

• Nail polish sets in the season's hottest shades make great bridesmaid gifts or stocking stuffers come holiday season.

Get well-groomed for your groom—and yourself, of course! Click on for tips on how to get a perfect ten (digits, that is) for that walk down the aisle.
